Antique dolls in Musee de la Poupee in Paris

I once deviated from my Paris tour group to find this small doll museum, and though I got lost and had to find my way on the subway in French, it was definitely worth it! Notice how they display the dolls in vignettes, some of which have watercolor painted backgrounds.

Here is an all needlepoint dollhouse (about 36" high), a large Shirley Temple (about 26" tall), and a carved wooden Hitty doll.

Janet and I were amazed at this dollhouse that we saw at the Twidkenham Doll Show in Huntsville. The lady made everything with needlepoint!
